As a series pilot, NFW was pretty good. As a movie, not so much. I expected a lot from this, being a Chase fan and having started a band in 1964 after the Beatles arrived. The acting was so-so, the editing was clumsy and the story moved like a pinball. On the plus side, some of the vignettes were spot on (especially the family scenes) and the warm glow of confusion of trying on a music career was captured accurately.
